Available for purchase

Just a quick post to let you know that we have two of these lovely chairs available for purchase at $75 each.
A mix of traditional and contemporary, these high-back dining chairs are covered in Tennyson by Waverly and painted in Granite Boulder by Behr. 
We also have two more in progress if you are looking for a set of four.
Enjoy your weekend!

For the Bibliophile

After I had made a number of bottle charms using the spoon bowls of some flatware, I was left with a pile of long handles. As my mom and I are always experimenting with new ideas and always trying to reuse as much of our materials as possible, I thought I would turn a few of the handles into bookmarks. 
To embellish them a little, I added some silver chain and some wire-wrapped beads. I think the result is quite pretty and fun.

The bookmarks are an especially lovely way to reuse old family silverware. I am going to make at least a couple from my great-grandmothers silverware as per my mom's suggestion yesterday.  
She said that my great-grandmother loved books and that as a child, she and her siblings would get so excited at the source of something to read, even if it was only a scrap of paper. 
I think the bookmark is a great way to commemorate her and something that she would love.

A Beautiful Summer's Day

This past Saturday we spent a lovely summer's day participating in Déja Vu Vintage Market.
The event was held on the grounds of Wellbrook Winery and lots of fun was had by all. 
The weather was beautiful, the food and wine was delicious and the vendors had loads of treasures. There was so much that I could have spent my money on!
Here are some photos of our booth. I really wish I had taken a few minutes to catch some shots of the winery  and other booths, but I guess there is always next year.

Thank you to all of you who visited our booth! We really appreciate so much lovely feedback! And a big thank you to Maris and Antonella for planning such a great event!
